    Default Colmanara culture

    Hi, Im an experienced grower, about 15 yrs, but one plant I havent figured out is Colmanara Wildcatt. What is your take on how the plant is to be grown? I can keep it alive indefinitely, but the plant just doesnt bulk up for me. Any thoughts are appreciated.

    It is a Odcdm now and I treat them like Odm's,and at this time it is nearly summer and I put them outside under the tree's,and I feed them weakly every time I water.
